Next’s share jumped 9% on the back of the impressive Q2 21 performance. The encouraging improvement in retail sales as a result of gradually eased social restrictions in the UK alongside the continued strong momentum in online sales have led the group to finish the quarter with 18.6% sales growth vs. the same period in 2019 (vs. guidance of 3% previously).

For investors, it was the sustainability of the rally in markets seen since March 2020. Today, while we are still thinking about the lifting of lockdown measures, we are also concerned about two “old favourites” from previous decades. Inflation and the parlous state of public finances. The BoE has said that although CPI inflation rose to
